    By now, we all know the annual pattern around Kentucky Wildcat basketball.

    “This year, we have 26-28 kids out,” says Anderson coach Catina Sims. “We had 17 last year. We have added some sprinters this year. We have some distance runners who are cross country runners who didn’t run track last year. We have added a couple of throwers.”

  • Bearcats looking to take final step to ecstasy in Rupp Arena

    The difference between high school basketball ecstasy and agony came down to the ball falling one way or the other.

    It sounds like an oversimplification, but it is true. Anderson County’s Cobe Penny launched a short runner, a shot Anderson assistant coach Bryan Hyatt said Penny would hit 90 percent of the time – with 1.9 seconds left in the Eighth Region championship game against Collins.
